Good news about Max Aarons, a real prospect.
In other news, TalkSport are reporting that Spurs have bid £15m for Jack Grealish. Simon Jordan (tool) was on with Danny Kelly and “valued” Grealish at £20-25m which is exactly where James Maddison has been placed by the media.
The £15m is expected to be knocked back with presumably another bid to come. This is a good barometer for the current market for top Championship attacking midfielders.
Worth keeping an eye on...

Long story short guy I work with is from Portugal and supports Boavista. He said that they were looking to sign Pinto? I am not sure how true it is or if he just trying to be funny as I said to him on Monday about how we are just selling everyone and I had also mentioned about us singing up our young RB and he'll be the 1st choice as Pinto is a poor defender. Or if he has seen tweets of Pinto putting pics on holiday in Portugal and just jumped to a conclusion. Anyway just thought I would put on here.

What I don't get is reports and fans saying if we sign this German chap that is the end of oliveira...but why? If we sell him we are back to two forwards again and two who really don't know the league. We need at least three forwards

West Ham to make an offer of 25 million over the weekend. That is more like it but in today's market, I imagine it will be like 16 million upfront and then the rest over a certain amount of months

Another gone and another of the criteria - 1.5m for a player we paid nothing for is very good. I bet he will be a better player at Bristol. I don't know how we will replace him as I don't know what position he played - the norwich site said he was a forward?

Glad he’s moved on and we’ve made a few quid. Marley never made much of a difference and was a flop. You can’t get every transfer right and he looked a player at Barnsley. A Webber signing that was in place before Farke was appointed. He did say at the time he supported the signing but he couldn’t say much else, really...

Here we go again. We have sold two player for a total of around 12.5 million and got two players off wage bill and at 7:30am this morning the pink have an article about us spending over 500k on the pitch and how we will not have lots of money to spend and how we have to lower the wage bill etc etc. It's like everytime we get money they look to make sure there is another reason for us not spending it.
